Got an app for android that says when the website changes. Just buzzed and this popped up.

Bass Uke

It says "Available Immediately" which usually means that they have more than one of them.

EDIT: The non-demo version is only £88.81. I think they used to cost more than that. [url="http://www.thomann.de/gb/harley_benton_kahuna_clu_bass.htm"]http://www.thomann.d...na_clu_bass.htm[/url]

Whoops! When a deko arrives I post ASAP. I didn't see that you had posted already.

Beat you to it this time! Not going to buy a uke though. Still a bargain for just over £40 but I'm getting fed up at the sight of acoustics.

They are still selling them so I am guessing that even though I have ordered mine there are more there so my guess is that it has worked. Time will tell.

EDIT: Uke now sold out. Good luck Owen.

EDIT: The price of the non-deko uke has gone up to £89.32. I wonder how often they check the exchange rate.

I expect they check the Exchange Rate daily, given the amount of stuff they ship they could lose £10000's otherwise

Oh, just had confirmation of a Deko Uke on its way, I'm trying to add the cheap 1/2 size Guitar case to the order to give it some protection when I gig it....!

Good result there chaps! I'm very interested to know what you think of these ukes as they're very much on my GAS list at the moment.
Owen, i may be wanting to pop by and see you when it arrives, if its convenient.
I look forward to your reviews guys.
Paul.

I will give you a nod when it appears. I have owned one before and the sound is sublime. The build quality is pretty rough but nothing half an hour with a sheet of sandpaper would not sort out. I am getting it for a friend but will try and arrange a time with you before I ship it off.

I've played a Harley Benton fretless bass uke and I liked it. It was nice to play and got a pretty cool sound.

Well, just had notice the Deko Uke has been dispatched so it would seem my email to them getting a half sized guitar gigbag for it has failed ! Hey ho.

Once I forgot to add some strings to an order. I emailed them before dispatch, but they dispatched first. Then they replied to the email and said that if I bought some strings, they'd send them out post free. It's [b]possible[/b] something similar might happen this time.

While I enjoy my HB Uke I think I should have went for the fretless version.

The thick strings squeezed into those reduced frets can take some getting used to.

Mind you they do sound good :)

I missed some dekos while I was in transit to work. The more people that can watch the page, the better. There was a standard precision and one of the more up-market (for HB) classical guitars, a CG300CE NT (with pickup). I think there was a shorty strat as well.

Yes, lightening struck twice and they gave me a code to put in the comments box which took off the postage for the case. Result. Let's hope the Uke does not have to go back...!

I was editing the thread, and didn't see your post Myke.

Congratulations! Hopefully you won't receive the dreaded 'actually, out of stock' email, and it's in good shape when it gets to you.
